Default ABS braking light

It has been two years now since my 98 CRV began having the ABS light
come on intermittently. After the first few months, I took it into my
mechanic. He spent hours trying to track it down and came up empty.
After his work on it the light did not come on for another 8 months. It
is back ! I purposely run over bumps in the road to make it turn off.
This often works. I don't know what it the most likely culprit might be.
If someone has some knowledge of this, I would love to be able to pass
this on to my mechanic. I live where there is normally close to the
largest snowfall each year in the lower 48. I really need that braking
to work and I would like to get it fixed this summer.

Is it just the light or the system itself? I suppose you can test out
the ABS in an empty parking lot. If it is just the light, you may
want check out the sensors, etc. in the ABS circuit.

I have had (not Honda!) other things come on in other cars for
no reason and in the end it was a sensor. They can be expensive,
though.
